News From The North

One reader tipped us off to the fact that the Canucks are debating a measure to raise the age of consent 2 years. To 16. 16! Meaning it's 14 right now, for those of you law types who "don't do math."

Supporters of the move say its needed to protect kids from web predators. Opponents, according to this article, blast the bill they say will "drive young lovers underground."

Are you telling me that Canadian yoots are so advanced, so progressive and open, that fourteen year-olds are open about their sexual exploits?

The article goes on to address some of the more interesting consequences of the bill - along with some more interesting unaddresses concerns facing same-sex, younger couples under the proposed bill and existing antiquated laws.
